Comparison, Swatches: Nina Ultra Pro in Glamrock

Nina Ultra Pro Nail Polish Glamrock

Nina Glamrock Nail Polish

Happy Monday! Did everyone have a fabulous weekend? For the last couple weeks I've been terribly sick with a case of the summer flu, but I'm starting to feel much better now. Thank you for all your emails and get well wishes, it really helped me through!  

Let's start off today with a fresh new color from Nina Ultra Pro called, Glamrock. It's a super blingy,  silver glitter suspended in a deep gray-charcoal base with silver glitter and small silver hexagon pieces floating throughout. The formula was chunky and on the thick side, but trust me, it's totally worth it!

Are you ready for a comparison?

Nina Glamrock Comparisons

Glamrock does indeed have a close sibling - and it's a good one too! Ever since Nicole's Nickel was released this past Spring at Target, I've worn it countless times. I absolutely adore it! So, if you missed out on this target exclusive, now's your chance to grab at almost half the cost.

There's only once small difference between the two. Nicole's Nickel has a lighter base color while Glamrock is a deeper, almost charcoal base with better color payoff. What's not to love? Great price, Great coverage?!

Nina Ultra Pro in Glamrock is available at Sally Beauty and retails for $4.49/ea or $3.79 if you're a Beauty Club Card Holder.

What do you think of Glamrock? Have you picked up any new colors from Nina Ultra Pro? Have a wonderful night!

I almost bought Nicole's Nickel last night,but I was in a hurry and on my way to pick up my husband. Now I am glad I didn't buy it. Thank you for this comparison!

I have Nicole's Nickel and loved how blingtastic it was, so of course I also like Glamrock! :) I just wish the formula was thinner and less chunky...but at least the colour is spectacular! :D

Thanks for swatching it and showing a side-by-side comparison!

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I missed out on speed, looks like a gorgeous high-end purple. btw, are you still thinking of selling studio m nail polishes on your website? thanks

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
